Since early 2012, the Garmin Forerunner 910XT continues to be the very best triathlon watch, period. Others have attempted to step-up, but up to now nothing has equalled its insightful features. And today it appears Garmin has elevated the bar by itself. The brand new Forerunner 920XT is everything the 910 was, plus much more.

It's basically e-ink, therefore it usually stays on, in watch mode, for longer amounts of time. Gps navigation monitoring occasions happen to be elevated to some full 24 hrs, and when you are an (insane) ultra-runner, place it in UltraTrac Mode to obtain as much as 40 hrs. For those that, 15 % lighter and 18 percent thinner compared to 910XT, that is a positive thing because, to tell the truth, that factor was type of chubby.

While swimming it'll still track your distance, pace, stroke type, stroke count, and SWOLF score, however it adds relaxation timers to hack the whip for you throughout your drills, and contains distance alerts to show you whenever a set has ended. As somebody who constantly manages to lose tabs on the number of laps they have swam, that's a killer feature. It will likewise provide you with time alerts that will help you hold your pace.
